Sometimes when I am feeling insecure and feel like I am doing this life on my own power, I stop and think, “Where did we ever get the idea that there is a God? We have never really seen him. Did we make Him up so we could ‘feel better’ about our human frailties?”
That is when I am full of doubt and out of faith. The only road back is through my heart. My mind deceives me by thinking small.
In the 1600’s, French Mathematician, Blaise Pascal, wrote many great statements on God. I love that a mathematician concerned with ones and zeros and facts, thought deeply about God. Two of my favorite quotes from him are below.
“There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of each man which cannot be satisfied by any created thing, but only by God the Creator.” – Blaise Pascal
“We know the truth, not only by the reason, but also by the heart.
God is, or God is not. Reason cannot decide between the two alternatives.” – Blaise Pascal
When I let go of reason, and into the feelings of my heart and my reactions to nature with all of its awesome beauty, I can’t help but know that,
“My heart can see God better than my eyes can.”
That’s when I am sure beyond any doubt, that God is there and always will be, if I seek him. He’s just waiting for us to ask Him to show us the way.
God could, and would, if he were sought.
Trust. Have faith. Seek.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”
